Sherlock Holmes 3 may or may not be happening, says Jude Law

1 hour ago

If you thought the wait for new episodes of Sherlock was bad, spare a thought for those poor souls still holding out hope for Guy Ritchie's long-delayed Sherlock Holmes 3.

Ever since Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows came out in 2011, a sequel has been both widely rumoured and expected, with both Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr confirming as much last year.

But when Digital Spy asked Law how the sequel was progressing, his response was a weary "I don't know". He added: "There is apparently still a will [to do it], there is a script being written, but I'm not sure."

So while it's by no means a straight-out denial, the fact that Law's still none the wiser suggests Sherlock series 4 might be on our screens before Sherlock Holmes 3 even enters production.

Producer Dan Lin confirmed in 2013 that Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce was working on the script for Sherlock Holmes 3, »

Man Up review: Simon Pegg and Lake Bell's rom-com is a winner

2 hours ago

Director: Ben Palmer; Screenwriter: Tess Morris; Starring: Simon Pegg, Lake Bell, Olivia Williams; Rory Kinnear; Running time: 88 mins; Certificate: 15

Cupid's arrow takes a circuitous route before finding its mark in Man Up, a truly rib-tickling rom-com that delivers the heady buzz of a great first date. But it's American actress Lake Bell (doing a fine English accent, here) who looks set to win viewers' hearts, more so than leading man Simon Pegg who generously acts as her 'straight man' - albeit slightly dizzied by the whirlwind of weird that Bell creates around him.

Bell, who also impressed with her 2013 writing/directing debut In a World..., stars as Nancy, vaguely depressed at still being single and incorrigibly goofy at 34 years old. However, judging by the way she tucks into a baguette on a crowded train, simultaneously complaining about her love life, she's not overly self-consciousness either.

Simon Pegg writes a love letter to London and promises a reunion with Edgar Wright

2 hours ago

Simon Pegg has no doubt that William Shatner could play Captain Kirk again

As well as being a rare romcom success, Simon Pegg's new film Man Up also shows off London in a way rarely seen on screen - as it actually is.

The Gloucestershire-born Crouch Ender told Digital Spy that he enjoyed writing a "love letter" to his adopted home city.

Away from the suburbs of Shaun of the Dead, the film "embraces the tourist part of London in a way which is just a little bit more truthful".

The actor's frequent collaborator Edgar Wright is currently locked down working on his new movie Baby Driver, but Pegg promised us that the reunion they teased last summer will most definitely be happening.

Written by Tess Morris and directed by Ben Palmer, Man Up features Pegg alongside Lake Bell and is in cinemas tomorrow (May 29). »

Remember Beyblade? Paramount is turning it into a live-action movie

7 hours ago

Beyblades were the must-have playground toys back in the day and now Paramount Pictures is making a live-action movie about them.

According to Deadline, the studio has acquired the rights to bring the Hasbro spinning tops to the big screen with Mary Parent as producer.

The Beyblade was adapted into a series of animated television shows in the early '00s during the height of its popularity, as well as video games.

The toys - which originate from Japan - were licensed by Hasbro in 2001 and have made $2.5 billion in revenue.

In some parts of the world, Beyblades remain popular, after a second generation Metal Fusion was released in 2009. There are also plans for another new range in 2017, which could arrive in time for the film.

A number of Hasbro properties have made the move to the big screen, including Transformers and GI Joe. »
